    لَیۡلَةُ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ خَیۡرࣱ مِّنۡ أَلۡفِ شَهۡرࣲ

    "Malam Lailatul-Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan" [Surah al-Qadr 3]

    #Menurut Syeikh Ali bin Ubaidillah: "Dinamakan malam al-Qadar kerana diturunkan pada malam tersebut kitab yang mempunyai kemuliaan di samping rahmat dan malaikat juga turun pada malam tersebut".

    #Kemuliaan apa lagi yang lebih agung dari suatu malam yang menjadi permulaan turunnya cahaya dan petunjuk kepada seluruh manusia setelah berlalunya beberapa abad kaum Quraisy yang berada dalam kesesatan menyembah berhala.

    #Tidak ada lagi keagungan yang lebih tinggi dari suatu malam yang menjadi saat bersinarnya cahaya pengetahuan Ilahi ke hati Rasulullah saw sebagai bukti rahmat kepada hamba-hambaNya.

    Berkata Imam Ad-Dahhaq: "Allah tidak takdirkan pada malam tersebut kecuali keselamatan".

    #Berkata pula Imam Mujahid: "Ia merupakan malam selamat di mana syaitan tidak mampu untuk melakukan sebarang kejahatan pada malam tersebut".

    #Sebahagian para ulamak telah menyebut dalam kitab masing-masing berkenaan dengan sebahagian tanda dan alamat yang mungkin dapat dilihat oleh sebahagian hamba Allah yang diizinkannya pada setiap tahun daripada bulan Ramadhan, antaranya ialah:

    1. Berkata Sayidina Ubadah bin al-Somit r.a: "Sesungguhnya malam tersebut bersih terang, seolah-olah bulan yang menerangi tenang, nyaman tidak terlalu sejuk pada malam tersebut dan tidak terlalu panas dan tiadalah tempat bagi bintang untuk dilihat dengannya hingga ke waktu pagi. Dan daripada tandanya bahawa matahari pada waktu paginya keluar dalam keadaan tidak bercahaya dengan kepanasan seperti bulan penuh purnama dan syaitan tidak ada tempat untuk keluar bersamanya pada hari tersebut.

    2. Daripada Sayidina Ubay bin Kaab r.a menyatakan daripada Nabi saw sabdanya: "Sesungguhnya matahari terbit pada hari tersebut tidak mempunyai cahaya dan kepanasan".

    3. Riwayat daripada Sayidina Ibn Mas’ud: "Sesungguhnya matahari keluar setiap hari antara dua tanduk syaitan, kecuali pagi malam qadar" (Lihat: Umdah al-Qari)

    #Antara doa terbaik untuk dibaca pada malam lailatulqadar ialah yang diriwayatkan daripada Sayidatina Aisyah r.ha, bahawa beliau bertanya Nabi saw: “Wahai Nabi Allah, jika aku bertemu dengan malam al-Qadar maka apa yang sepatutnya aku ucapkan. Nabi saw bersabda:

    اللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ، فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

    "Ya Allah Ya Tuhan Kami, sesungguhnya Kamu Maha Pengampun dan amat suka akan keampunan, maka berikanlah keampunan kepadaku" (HR at-Tirmizi, Ibn Majah dan Ahmad)

    #Imam an-Nawawi berkata bahawa ashab kami (ulamak Syafieyyah) mengatakan disunatkan memperbanyakkan membaca doa ini pada malam al-Qadar. Begitu juga, disunatkan membaca al-Quran, zikir-zikir dan doa-doa yang disunatkan pada tempat-tempat yang mulia. (Lihat: al-Azkar)

    ♡Banyakkan beramal di 10 malam terakhir Ramadhan. Moga kita bertemu malam al-Qadar. Aamiiin♡

    لَیۡلَةُ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ خَیۡرࣱ مِّنۡ أَلۡفِ شَهۡرࣲ

    "Malam Lailatul-Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan" [Surah al-Qadr 3]

    #Imam Ibn Qudamah rahimahullah berpendapat malam al-Qadar ialah malam yang mulia, diberkati, diagungkan dan mempunyai banyak kelebihan. (Lihat: al-Mughni)

    #Menurut Imam Abu Bakar al-Warraq, dinamakan al-Qadar kerana siapa yang tidak mempunyai kemuliaan akan mendapat kemuliaan dengan melakukan ibadat pada malam tersebut.

    #Berkata as-Syahid Sayid Qutub rahimahullah: "Terdapat ayat-ayat al-Quran yang menyebut peristiwa malam ini berkilauan memancarkan cahaya, ia melimpahkan cahaya yang tenang, indah dan mesra iaitu cahaya Allah yang gemilang di dalam al-QuranNya"

    #Imam Ibn Kathir berkata: "Zahir ayat menunjukkan bahawa malam Qadar lebih afdal daripada malam Jumaat. Walaupun begitu, ada juga pendapat yang mengatakan malam Jumaat lebih afdal".

    #Imam al-Qurtubi rahimahullah berkata: "Malam Qadar mempunyai kelebihan kerana banyaknya keistimewaan dan malam tersebut dibahagikan kebaikan yang banyak yang tidak terdapat seumpamanya pada seribu bulan. Ramai ulama dan ahli tafsir berpendapat amalan dilakukan pada malam Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan yang tiada padanya malam Qadar".

    #Malam al-Qadar itu merupakan perayaan bagi umat Islam di mana telah turunnya al-Quran dan merupakan malam kesyukuran, kebajikan dan kenikmatan. Malaikat menyertai manusia pada malam itu dan mereka mengetahui kelebihan malam tersebut dan betapa besarnya kelebihan manusia atas diri mereka. Seterusnya, Allah swt menjadikan manusia sebagai khalifah di atas muka bumi.

    تَنَزّلُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيْهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْـرٍ﴿٤﴾ سَلاَمٌ هِيَ حَتَّى مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ

    "Pada malam itu turun malaikat-malaikat dan malaikat Jibril dengan izin  TuhanNya untuk mengatur segala urusan. Malam itu (penuh) kesejahteraan sehingga terbit fajar" [Surah al-Qadr 4-5]

    #Menurut Imam al-Qurtubi rahimahullah: "Mereka (malaikat) turun daripada setiap langit dan juga Sidratul Muntaha ke langit dunia untuk mengaminkan doa orang yang memohon pada malam tersebut hingga waktu fajar".

    ♡Sepatutnya umat Islam menjadikan malam kemuliaan ini sebagai malam perayaan! Malam inilah permulaan turunnya perundangan samawi (langit), yang membimbing umat Islam ke arah yang baik. Jom hidupkan malam dengan ibadah!!♡

  • PERKONGSIAN 1 HARI 1 HADIS

    Memburu Lailatul Qadar Sepuluh Malam Terakhir Ramadan

    عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُجَاوِرُ فِي الْعَشْرِ الْأَوَاخِرِ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ وَيَقُولُ تَحَرَّوْا لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ فِي الْعَشْرِ الْأَوَاخِرِ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ

    Daripada Aisyah Radliallahu 'anha berkata: Rasulullah SAW beriktikaf pada sepuluh hari terakhir dari bulan Ramadan dan bersabda: "Carilah Lailatul Qadar pada sepuluh malam yang akhir dari Ramadan". (Sahih Bukhari No: 1916) Dar Ibn Kathir.  Status: Hadis Sahih.

    Pengajaran:

    1.  Rasulullah SAW menyuruh beriktikaf pada 10 malam terakhir dari Ramadan untuk memburu lailatul Qadr.

    2.  Bersungguh beramal pada 10 malam terakhir Ramadan untuk memperoleh lailatul Qadar yang ganjaran amalan pada malam tersebut lebih baik daripada 1000 bulan atau lebih baik daripada 83 tahun 4 bulan.

    لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ (٣)

    "malam kemuliaan  (lailatul Qadr) itu lebih baik daripada seribu bulan" (al-Qadr: 3).

    3.  Sepatutnya kita tidak hanya memilih malam-malam tertentu untuk memburu lailatul Qadar kerana tidak ada satu tarikh yang tepat dan ia dirahsiakan untuk menjadi pendorong kepada kita mencarinya pada sepuluh malam terakhir Ramadhan.

    4.  Bangunkan ahli keluarga kita untuk bersama merebut peluang bertemu lailatul Qadar.

    5.  Perbanyakkan iktikaf, pelihara solat fardhu berjemaah di masjid, tingkatkan tilawah al-Quran, perbanyakkan doa dan permohonan ampun kepada Allah.

    6.  Imam Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali Rahimahullah menyatakan: Sebahagian ulama mazhab Syafie menakalkan riwayat daripada Ibn ‘Abbas RA bahawa: “Menghidupkan malam Lailatul Qadar akan terhasil apabila seseorang mendirikan solat ‘Isya’ secara berjemaah dan berazam untuk melakukan solat Subuh secara berjemaah jua. Imam Malik merekodkan dalam al-Muwatta’ bahawa Imam Ibn al-Musayyib berkata: Sesiapa yang bertemu dengan Lailatul Qadar bermaksud (yang mendirikan solat) dalam berjemaah (pada malam tersebut), maka dia akan memperolehi kebaikan malam itu. Begitu jugalah yang dikatakan oleh Imam asy-Syafie rahimahullah dalam pendapat lamanya: Sesiapa yang mendirikan solat Isya’ dan Subuh pada malam Lailatul Qadar, maka dia akan memperoleh kebaikannya.” Lihat Lathaif al-Maarif (hal. 159).

    7.  Marilah kita berazam bersungguh-sungguh untuk bertemu Lailatul Qadar. Bayangkan seolah-olah inilah Ramadan terakhir kita dan mungkin ini peluang terakhir untuk bertemu Lailatul Qadar pada tahun ini.

    لَیۡلَةُ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ خَیۡرࣱ مِّنۡ أَلۡفِ شَهۡرࣲ

    "Malam Lailatul-Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan" [Surah al-Qadr 3]

    #Rasulullah saw memberi beberapa isyarat kepada kita berkaitan malam al-Qadar ini. Antaranya, Baginda saw menyatakan bahawa malam al-Qadar berlaku pada 10 akhir daripada malam ganjil dalam bulan Ramadhan.

    #Sayidina Jabir bin Samurah r.a berkata bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    الْتَمِسُوهَا فِي الْعَشْرِ الْأَوَاخِرِ وِتْرًا

    "Carilah malam al-Qadar pada sepuluh malam terakhir pada malam yang ganjil" (HR Ahmad)

    #Dalam menentukan malam al-Qadar ini, antara pendapat yang paling kuat mengikut para ulamak bahawa malam itu berlaku pada malam 27 Ramadhan.

    #Hujah mereka amat banyak, antaranya:

    1. Mengikut Sayidina Abu Ka’ab r.a katanya: "Demi Allah sesungguhnya Ibn Mas’ud telah meyakinkan bahawa malam al-Qadar berada dalam bulan Ramadhan dan jatuh pada malam ke-27. Akan tetapi, beliau enggan memberitahu kepada kami (malam yang tepat) kerana bimbangkan kamu tidak lagi berusaha mencarinya".

    2. Daripada riwayat Sayidina Muawiyah r.a: "Bahawa Nabi saw telah bersabda bahawa malam al-Qadar berlaku pada malam ke-27".

    3. Riwayat ini disokong oleh Sayidina Ibn Abbas r.a yang mengatakan bahawa surah al-Qadar mempunyai 30 perkataan. Perkataan yang ke-27 bagi surah itu adalah dhamir (هِيَ) yang kembalinya kepada Lailatul Qadar.

    4. Imam Ahmad telah meriwayatkan sebuah hadis daripada Sayidina Ibn Umar r.a: "Sesiapa yang mencari malam al-Qadar, hendaklah dia mencarinya pada malam yang ke-27, carilah kamu malam al-Qadar pada malam yang ke-27".

    #Namun begitu, Imam as-Syafie berpendapat malam al-Qadar berlaku pada malam ke-21 Ramadhan berdalilkan hadis riwayat Sayidina Ibn Mas'ud. Terdapat juga pandangan Imam as-Syafie dan Imam Malik mengatakan berlaku pada malam 23 Ramadhan berdasarkan hadis daripada Sayidina Abdullah bin Unais r.a.

    #Terdapat juga pendapat lain yang mengatakan berlaku pada malam ke 24 atau malam-malam terakhir Ramadhan.

    #Ketahuilah bahawa Allah swt merahsiakan malam al-Qadar supaya ia menjadi pendorong kepada orang ramai untuk mencarinya. Disamping, supaya mereka berusaha bersungguh-sungguh dalam menunaikan ibadah demi untuk mencari malam tersebut seperti disembunyikan masa yang diperkenan doa pada hari Jumaat dan juga disembunyikan namanya yang agung daripada segala nama-nama yang Dia miliki.

    ♡Selamat beramal dan memburu lailatulqadar. Malam ni malam ke 21 Ramadhan, merupakan malam yang diharapkan lailatulqadar disisi Imam as-Syafi‘i. Jom qiam!!♡

    لَیۡلَةُ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ خَیۡرࣱ مِّنۡ أَلۡفِ شَهۡرࣲ

    "Malam Lailatul-Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan" [Surah al-Qadr 3]

    #Hari ini hari ke 19 umat Islam di Malaysia berpuasa. Malam ini masuklah malam ke 20. Ini bermakna kita bakal memasuki 10 malam terakhir Ramadhan. Malam yang dijanjikan dengan Lailatul Qadr iaitu malam yang lebih baik daripada 1000 bulan.

    #Kita sangat dituntut untuk mencari malam al-Qadar dan bersungguh-sungguh dalam melakukan amalan ketaatan.

    #Diriwayatkan daripada Sayidina Jabir bin Samurah r.a, bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    الْتَمِسُوهَا فِي الْعَشْرِ الْأَوَاخِرِ وِتْرًا

    "Carilah malam al-Qadar pada sepuluh malam terakhir pada malam yang ganjil" (HR Ahmad)

    #Bahkan Nabi saw, sangat bersungguh-sungguh di 10 malam terakhir Ramadhan. Daripada Sayidatina Aisyah r.ha, beliau menceritakan:

    كَانَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا دَخَلَ العَشْرُ الأوَاخِرُ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ أَيْقَظَ أَهْلَهُ وَشَدَّ المِئْزَرَ وَأَحْيَا اللَّيْلَ

    "Adapun Rasulullah saw apabila tiba 10 hari terakhir bulan Ramadhan, Baginda saw membangunkan ahli rumahnya, mengikat kainnya (menjauhi isteri-isterinya) serta menghidupkan malam tersebut" (HR Ibn Hibban)

    #Terdapat riwayat lain yang menunjukkan akan kesungguhan Baginda saw sebagaimana diceritakan oleh
    Sayidatina Aisyah r.ha:

    كَانَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَجْتَهِدُ فِيْ العَشْرِ الأَوَاخِرِ ، مَا لَا يَجْتَهِدُ فِيْ غَيْرِهِ

    "Adalah Rasulullah saw berusaha sedaya upaya pada malam sepuluh akhir Ramadhan melebihi usahanya daripada malam-malam yang lain" (HR Muslim)

    #10 malam terakhir adalah malam-malam yang sangat kritikal, malam yang diharapkan satu daripadanya adalah Lailatul Qadar yang nilainya lebih baik daripada 1000 bulan.

    #Maka untuk meraih kebaikan maksimum rancanglah ia dengan sebaik-baiknya. Kata orang, jika kita tidak merancang untuk berjaya bererti kita merancang untuk gagal.

    #Antara amalan baik yang boleh dirancang untuk diisi pada malam-malam 10 terakhir ini:

    1. Qiam, dengan mendirikan solat tarawih, solat witir, solat tahajud dan memperbanyakkan solat-solat sunat.

    2. Iktikaf, dimasjid-masjid dan mana-mana rumah Allah.

    3. Tilawah al-Quran, menggandakan bacaan al-Quran.

    4. Berdakwah, mengajak kepada Islam, beriman kepada Allah dan melaksanakan suruhan serta menjauhi laranganNya.

    5. Mengajak ahli keluarga bersama-sama menghidupkan 10 malam terakhir dengan amal ketaatan.

    6. Taja iftar, Sekurang-kurangnya taja satu orang satu malam.

    7. Membanyakkan doa keampunan dan doa-doa yang dihajati.

    8. Membaca buku untuk menambah ilmu atau mendengar ceramah/tazkirah dan seumpamanya.

    9. Bersedekah, walaupun dengan nilai yang kecil tapi istiqamah setiap malam.

    10. Berzikir, selawat dan istighfar.

    ♡Ingat! Setiap apa yang kita rancang dan kita lakukan setiap malam pada 10 malam terakhir, satu daripadanya insyaaAllah akan berbetulan dengan malam istimewa itu. Maka untuk amalan kita pada malam itu: solat, tilawah, istighfar, doa, sedekah, dakwah dan lain-lain, ganjarannya lebih baik daripada beramal selama 1000 bulan! Aduhai, alangkah ruginya kalau ia terlepas♡

  • Bisikan Ruh Ramadhan 1

    Ramadhan adalah bulan teristimewa yang berbeza dari bulan-bulan yang lain. Ianya adalah :

    1. Bulan diturunkan Al Quran dan kitab-kitab samawiyyah.

    Allah ta’ala berfirman,

    شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآَنُ هُدًى لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَنْ
    شَهِدَ مِنْكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ{البقرة: ١٨٥}

    “(Beberapa hari yang ditentukan itu ialah) bulan Ramadhan, bulan yang di dalamnya diturunkan (permulaan) Al Quran sebagai petunjuk bagi manusia dan penjelasan-penjelasan mengenai petunjuk itu dan pembeza (antara yang hak dan yang bathil). Kerana itu, barangsiapa di antara kamu hadir (di negeri tempat tinggalnya) di bulan itu, maka hendaklah ia berpuasa pada bulan itu.”

    (Al Baqarah: 185)
     

    إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ (1) وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ (2) لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ(3){القدر: ١-٣}

    ”Sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkannya (Al Quran) pada lailatul qadar (malam kemuliaan). Dan tahukah kamu apakah malam kemuliaan itu? Malam kemuliaan itu lebih baik dari seribu bulan.”
    (Al Qadr: 1-3).
     
    Allah ta’ala juga berfirman,

    إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةٍ مُبَارَكَةٍ إِنَّا كُنَّا
    مُنْذِرِينَ {الدخان: ٣}

    ”Sesungguhnya Kami menurunkannya pada suatu malam yang diberkati dan sesungguhnya Kami-lah yang memberi peringatan.”
    ( Ad-Dukhan: 3)

     
    2. Bulan untuk qiyamullail dengan solat tarawih dan tahajjud.

    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,

    من قام رمضان إيمانا واحتسابا غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه
    (رواه البخاري ومسلم). 

    ”Barangsiapa yang berdiri (menunaikan salat) di bulan Ramadan dengan iman dan mengharap (pahala), maka dosa-dosanya yang telah lalu akan diampuni”.

    3. Bulan pengampunan dan penghapus dosa.

    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,

    من صام رمضان إيمانا واحتسابا غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه (رواه البخاري ومسلم)

    Barangsiapa yang berpuasa di bulan Ramadhan dengan penuh keimanan dan pengharapan, maka akan diampunkan dosanya yang telah lalu.”

    (HR al-Bukhari dan Muslim)

    4. Bulan pembebasan dari api neraka.

    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,

    (ولله عتقاء من النار وذلك في كل ليلة) رواه الترمذي وابن ماجه.

    Dan bagi Allah membebaskan sejumlah orang dari neraka. Hal itu terjadi pada setiap malam.” (HR. Tirmizi dan Ibn Majah)

    5. Bulan ihsan kasihan belas dan pemurah.

    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,

    عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال: كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود الناس وكان أجود ما يكون في رمضان حين يلقاه جبريل فيدارسه القرآن. (رواه البخاري ومسلم)

    Nabi ‎ﷺ adalah orang yang paling dermawan. Dan Baginda lebih dermawan lagi di bulan Ramadhan saat Baginda bertemu Jibril. Jibril menemuinya setiap malam untuk mengajarkan Al Qur’an.

    (HR. Bukhari,Muslim)

    6. Bulan dibuka pintu-pintu syurga, ditutup pintu-pintu neraka dan dibelenggu para syaitan.

    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,

    إذا جاء رمضان فتحت أبواب الجنة، وغلقت أبواب النار، وصفدت الشياطين (رواه البخاري ومسلم)

    Bila datang Ramadhan, dibuka pintu-pintu syurga, ditutup pintu-pintu neraka, dibelenggu para syaitan.

    ( HR Bukhari, Muslim)

    7. Bulan doa-doa dimakbulkan oleh Allah ta’ala.

    Dalam surah Al Baqarah selepa ayat kewajipan berpuasa, Allah ta’ala menyatakan tentang diriNya sebagai Pemakbul Doa dari para hambaNya.

    وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ ‎
    ﴿البقرة: ١٨٦﴾‏

    Dan apabila hamba-hambaKu bertanya kepadamu mengenai Aku maka (beritahu kepada mereka): sesungguhnya Aku (Allah) sentiasa hampir (kepada mereka); Aku perkenankan permohonan orang yang berdoa apabila ia berdoa kepadaKu. Maka hendaklah mereka menyahut seruanku (dengan mematuhi perintahKu), dan hendaklah mereka beriman kepadaKu supaya mereka menjadi baik serta betul. (186)

    (Al Baqarah: 186)


    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,

    ثَلاَثَةٌ لاَ تُرَدُّ دَعْوَتُهُمُ الصَّائِمُ حَتَّى يُفْطِرَ وَالإِمَامُ الْعَادِلُ وَدَعْوَةُ
    الْمَظْلُومِ

    “Tiga orang yang do’anya tidak tertolak: orang yang berpuasa sampai ia berbuka, pemimpin yang adil, dan do’a orang yang dizalimi”.

    (HR Tirmizi)


    8. Bulan yang digandakan pahala amal ibadah dan kebaikan.

    Nabi ﷺ bersabda,


    فَإِذَا جَاءَ رَمَضَانُ فَاعْتَمِرِي ، فَإِنَّ عُمْرَةً
    فِيهِ تَعْدِلُ حَجَّةً

    Sekiranya telah tiba bulan Ramadhan, maka hendaklah kamu mengerjakan umrah. Ini kerana umrah pada bulan tersebut menyamai pahalanya seperti mengerjakan haji.

    (HR al-Bukhari)

    9. Bulan berlakunya lailatul qadar iaitu malam yang paling mulia.

    Allah ta’ala berfirman,

    إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ (1) وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ (2) لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ(3)

    ”Sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkannya (Al Quran) pada lailatul qadar (malam kemuliaan). Dan tahukah kamu apakah malam kemuliaan itu? Malam kemuliaan itu lebih baik dari seribu bulan.”
    (Al Qadr: 1-3).
     
    Allah ta’ala juga berfirman,

    إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةٍ مُبَارَكَةٍ إِنَّا كُنَّا مُنْذِرِينَ
     
    ”Sesungguhnya Kami menurunkannya pada suatu malam yang diberkati dan sesungguhnya Kami-lah yang memberi peringatan.”

    ( Ad-Dukhan: 3)

    Justeru, ambillah dan rebutlah ruang dan peluang yang Allah ta’ala telah berikan padamu dengan hadirnya Ramadhan tahun ini. Kerana engkau tidak pasti lagi dapat menemuinya pada tahun hadapan.

  • ☆Tadabbur Kalamullah 14 Ramadhan 1445H☆

    قُمِ ٱلَّیۡلَ إِلَّا قَلِیلࣰا

    "Bangunlah sembahyang Tahajjud pada waktu malam, selain dari sedikit masa (yang tak dapat tidak untuk berehat)" [Surah al-Muzzammil 2]

    #Allah swt meminta hamba-hambaNya bangun beribadah pada waktu malam melibatkan sebahagian daripadanya, bukanlah sepanjang malam. Sebagai seorang mukmin maka sahutlah seruan Allah untuk bangun menghidupkan malam terutama di bulan Ramadhan yang mulia ini.

    #Antara solat malam yang boleh ditunaikan ialah solat tahajud dan juga solat witir.

    #Solat sunat Tahajjud, solat ini dilaksanakan, selepas bangun dari tidur dan sebelum masuk waktu subuh. (Lihat: al-Fiqh al-Manhaji)

    #Diriwayatkan daripada Sayidina Abu Hurairah r.a, bahawa Nabi saw bersabda:

    وَأَفْضَلُ الصَّلَاةِ بَعْدَ الْفَرِيضَةِ؛ صَلَاةُ اللَّيْلِ

    "Sebaik-baik solat setelah solat fardhu ialah solat malam" (HR Muslim)

    #Imam Ibnu Rajab berkata: "Waktu tahajud di malam hari adalah sebaik-baik waktu pelaksanaan solat sunat. Ketika itu hamba semakin dekat dengan Tuhannya. Waktu tersebut adalah saat dibukakannya pintu langit dan terkabulnya doa. Saat itu juga adalah waktu untuk mengemukakan pelbagai hajat kepada Allah swt" (Lihat: Lata’if al-Ma’arif)

    #Selain solat tahajud, kita juga boleh tunaikan solat sunat witir.

    #Daripada Sayidina Abu Ayyub r.a, katanya, Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    الْوِتْرُ حَقٌّ عَلَى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٍ فَمَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يُوتِرَ بِخَمْسٍ فَلْيَفْعَلْ وَمَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يُوتِرَ بِثَلاَثٍ فَلْيَفْعَلْ وَمَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يُوتِرَ بِوَاحِدَةٍ فَلْيَفْعَلْ

    "Solat Witir ialah syariat yang dituntut atas setiap orang Islam. Sesiapa hendak melakukannya 5 rakaat lakukanlah, sesiapa yang hendak melakukannya 3 rakaat lakukanlah, dan sesiapa hendak melakukannya 1 rakaat sahaja lakukanlah" (HR Abu Daud)

    #Pengarang kitab Fiqh al-Manhaji menyebutkan: "Sekurang-kurang sempurna solat Witir ialah tiga rakaat, iaitu melakukannya secara dua rakaat bersambung dan satu rakaat lagi berasingan. Sementara yang paling sempurna adalah melakukannya sebanyak sebelas rakaat dengan mengucap salam selepas setiap dua rakaat dan diakhiri dengan satu rakaat".

    #Menurut mazhab Syafi‘i, kita disunatkan untuk solat sunat witir secara berjemaah di dalam bulan Ramadhan.

    #Sabda Nabi saw:

    مَنْ خَافَ أَنْ لاَ يَقُومَ مِنْ آخِرِ اللَّيْلِ فَلْيُوتِرْ أَوَّلَهُ وَمَنْ طَمِعَ أَنْ يَقُومَ آخِرَهُ فَلْيُوتِرْ آخِرَ اللَّيْلِ فَإِنَّ صَلاَةَ آخِرِ اللَّيْلِ مَشْهُودَةٌ وَذَلِكَ أَفْضَلُ

    "Sesiapa yang takut tidak terbangun pada saat akhir malam, dia hendaklah mendirikan solat witir lebih awal, dan sesiapa yang bersungguh-sungguh untuk bangun pada akhir malam dia hendaklah mendirikan solat witir pada akhir malam. Sesungguhnya solat pada akhir malam disaksikan yakni dihadiri oleh malaikat dan itulah yang paling baik (afdhal)" (HR Muslim)

    ♡Selamat menghidupkan malam-malam Ramadhan dengan solat malam, solat tahajud, solat tasbih, solat taubat, solat hajat, solat witir dan solat sunat yang lain. Jom solat!!♡

    "(Masa yang diwajibkan kamu berpuasa itu ialah) bulan Ramadan yang padanya diturunkan al-Quran, menjadi petunjuk bagi sekalian manusia, dan menjadi keterangan-keterangan yang menjelaskan petunjuk dan (menjelaskan) perbezaan antara yang benar dengan yang salah"
    [Surah al-Baqarah 185]

    #Al-Quran selain untuk dibaca bagi menambahkan pahala, ia juga menjadi terapi kepada jiwa. Orang yang hidup dengan al-Quran akan tenang jiwanya. Hal ini kerana hidup mereka sentiasa ingat akan Allah swt.

    الَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوا وَتَطْمَىِٕنُّ قُلُوْبُهُمْ بِذِكْرِ اللّٰهِ ۗ اَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللّٰهِ تَطْمَىِٕنُّ الْقُلُوْبُ

    “(Iaitu) orang-orang yang beriman dan tenang tenteram hati mereka dengan 'zikrullah' (mengingati Allah). Ketahuilah! Dengan zikrullah itu, tenang tenteramlah hati manusia" [Surah ar-Ra’d 28]

    #Sayidina Ibn ‘Abbas r.huma pernah ditanya: "Amalan apakah yang paling utama?” Beliau menjawab: ‘وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ’ (Dan sesungguhnya mengingati Allah adalah lebih besar (faedahnya dan kesannya)".

    #Dengan membaca al-Quran akan mendekatkan kita kepada Allah, mengingatkan kita kepadaNya dan memberi ketenangan yang sebenarnya.

    #Selain itu, al-Quran adalah penyembuh, doa dan zikir yang paling mustajab. Firman Allah swt:

    وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلْقُرْءَانِ مَا هُوَ شِفَآءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ وَلَا يَزِيدُ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ إِلَّا خَسَارًا

    "Dan Kami turunkan dengan beransur-ansur dari Al-Quran Ayat-ayat suci yang menjadi ubat penawar dan rahmat bagi orang-orang yang beriman kepadanya; dan (sebaliknya) Al-Quran tidak menambahkan orang-orang yang zalim (disebabkan keingkaran mereka) melainkan kerugian jua” [Surah al-Isra’ 82]

    #Berkata Imam al-Baidawi berkenaan ayat ini: "Iaitu yang boleh menguatkan agama mereka dan juga memberi kebaikan seperti ubat penyembuh bagi orang yang sakit" (Lihat: Tafsir al-Baidawi)

    #Al-Quran juga menjadi penawar penyakit-penyakit batin dan juga sebagai petunjuk hidayah. Allah swt berfirman lagi:

    يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ قَدْ جَآءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَشِفَآءٌ لِّمَا فِى ٱلصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

    "Wahai umat manusia! Sesungguhnya telah datang kepada kamu Al-Quran yang menjadi nasihat pengajaran dari Tuhan kamu, dan yang menjadi penawar bagi penyakit-penyakit batin yang ada di dalam dada kamu, dan juga menjadi hidayah petunjuk untuk keselamatan, serta membawa rahmat bagi orang-orang yang beriman" [Surah Yunus 57]

  • ISIS claims responsibility for attack at Moscow-area concert venue that left at least 60 dead
    CNN — normal
    ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack at a popular concert hall complex near Moscow Friday after assailants stormed the venue with guns and incendiary devices, killing at least 60 people and injuring 145.

    The terror group took responsibility for the attack in a short statement published by ISIS-affiliated news agency Amaq on Telegram on Friday. It did not provide evidence to support the claim.

    Video footage from the Crocus City Hall shows the vast complex, which is home to both the music hall and a shopping center, on fire with smoke billowing into the air. State-run RIA Novosti reported the armed individuals “opened fire with automatic weapons” and “threw a grenade or an incendiary bomb, which started a fire.” They then “allegedly fled in a white Renault car,” the news agency said.

    State media Russia 24 reported the roof of the venue has partially collapsed.

    The fire had been brought largely under control more than six hours later. “There are still some pockets of fire, but the fire has been mostly eliminated,” Moscow governor Andrey Vorobyov said on Telegram.

    The deadliest terror attack on Moscow in decades, Friday’s assault came less than a week after President Vladimir Putin won a stage-managed election by an overwhelming majority to secure another term in office, tightening his grip on the country he has ruled since the turn of the century.

    With attention focused on the country’s war with neighboring Ukraine, Putin had trumpeted a message of national security before Russians went to the polls.

    The carnage broke out before a concert by the band Picnic, according to Russia 24.

    “Unidentified people in camouflage broke into Crocus City Hall and started shooting before the start of the concert,” the Prosecutor General’s Office said, cited by TASS.

    This screen grab from video shows armed men inside the Crocus City Hall concert venue in Moscow region, Russia. CNN can not verify whether these are the armed attackers or Russian authorities moving in.
    Video footage showed panic as the attack unfolded, with crowds of people huddling together, screaming and ducking behind cushioned seats as gunshots started echoing in the vast hall. One group sheltering next to a large wall of windows outside the concert venue were forced to break them to escape the gunfire, video obtained by CNN shows.

    Footage geolocated by CNN shows an armed individual starting at least one fire inside the venue. The individual is seen carrying something in their hand and, as they walk off-screen, a bright flash of light from a large flame is seen in the video.

    A SWAT team was called to the area and more than 70 ambulance teams and doctors assisted victims.

    One hundred and forty-five people have been hospitalized, TASS reported. Sixty people are in a “serious condition.”

    According to the Kremlin, Putin was informed about the attack and is being kept updated on measures on the ground.

    The president on Saturday wished those injured in the attack a speedy recovery, the state-run RIA-Novosti news agency said. He also “conveyed his gratitude to the doctors,” RIA added.

    Around 100 people were evacuated from the building by firefighters, TASS reported.

    Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin called the attack a “terrible tragedy.”

    “My condolences to the loved ones of the victims. I gave orders to provide all necessary assistance to everyone who suffered during the incident,” Sobyanin said in a statement.

    Sobyanin said on Telegram that he was canceling all sports, cultural and other public events in Moscow this weekend.

    Picnic’s manager told state media that the performers were unharmed.

    Shaman, the band’s singer, said he would pay for the funerals of the victims and treatment for those injured.

    “We are all one big family. And in a family there is no such thing as somebody else’s grief,” the singer, known for his nationalistic views, said in a video posted on the Russian social media network Vkontakte to his more than 600,000 followers.

    “My people, any troubles and misfortunes have always united our country. They have made Russia tougher and stronger. It will not be possible to frighten and break us this time either.”

    ISIS claims responsibility for Moscow attack that killed 40

    02:51 - Source: CNN
    US had warned of potential attack

    Earlier this month, the US embassy in Russia said it was “monitoring reports that extremists have imminent plans to target large gatherings in Moscow,” including concerts. The embassy warned US citizens to avoid large gatherings. On Friday, following reports of the Crocus City Hall attack, it advised US citizens not to travel to Russia.

    Starting in November, there has been a steady stream of intelligence that ISIS-K was determined to attack in Russia, according to two sources familiar with the information.

    ISIS-K stands for ISIS-Khorasan, the terror organization’s affiliate that is active in Afghanistan and the surrounding region.

    US National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson said the US government had had information about a planned terrorist attack in Moscow – potentially targeting large gatherings, to include concerts – and that this is what prompted the State Department to issue the public advisory.

    “The US government also shared this information with Russian authorities in accordance with its longstanding ‘duty to warn’ policy,” Watson said.

    In a speech Tuesday, Putin had blasted the American warnings as “provocative,” saying “these actions resemble outright blackmail and the intention to intimidate and destabilize our society.”

    In March alone, Russian authorities had thwarted several ISIS-related incidents, according to RIA. On March 3, RIA reported that six ISIS members were killed in a counter-terrorist operation in the Ingush Karabulak; on March 7, it said security services had uncovered and “neutralized” a cell of the banned organization Vilayat Khorasan in the Kaluga region, whose members were planning an attack on a synagogue in Moscow; and on March 20, it said the commander of an ISIS combat group had been detained.

    A US official said Friday that Washington had no reason to doubt ISIS’ claim that it was responsible for the latest attack.

    International response

    Ukraine, which has been embroiled in a war with Russia for more than two years, denied any involvement in the attack.

    “Ukraine has never resorted to the use of terrorist methods,” Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak wrote, in part, in a post on X. He said he believed Russia would use the attack to justify the ongoing conflict and scale up operations as part of “military propaganda” in Ukraine.

    United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres late Friday condemned “in the strongest possible terms today’s terrorist attack” according to a statement released by his deputy spokesperson, Farhan Haq.

    “The secretary-general conveys his deep condolences to the bereaved families and the people and the government of the Russian Federation. He wishes those injured a speedy recovery,” the statement said.

    In a separate statement, the UN Security Council called the attack “heinous and cowardly.”

    Chinese leader Xi Jinping offered his condolences to Putin on Saturday “over the serious terrorist attack that caused heavy casualties,” according to a report from Chinese state media.

    French President Emmanuel Macron also condemned the attack. “France expresses its solidarity with the victims, their loved ones and all the Russian people,” the Elysee Palace said, AFP and Reuters reported.

    India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman both also denounced the attack.

    CNN’s Eva Rothenberg, Paul Murphy and Hannah Strange contributed to this reporting.

  • Inside the anti-Syria lobby’s Capitol Hill push for more starvation sanctions
    Hekmat AboukhaterMarch 20, 2024

    A week from the 13th anniversary of the US-backed Syrian dirty war, the American Coalition for Syria held its annual day of advocacy in Washington DC. I went undercover into meetings with Senate policy advisors and witnessed the lobby’s cynical campaign to starve Syria into submission.

    On the morning of March 7, as the US Capitol teemed with lobbyists securing earmarks ahead of appropriations week and activists decrying the Gaza genocide, one special interest group on the Hill stood out. In the corridors of the Rayburn building, a group of roughly 50 people prepared for a busy day of advocating for sanctions to be levied against their homeland.

    They were the Anti-Syria lobby — and had I infiltrated their influence campaign.

    Throughout the day, I watched as this group pushed US officials to accept their policy of starvation sanctions while cynically ignoring famished Palestinians in Gaza.

    Among the lobbyists was Raed Saleh, the head of the Syrian White Helmets, who were to propagandize for regime change from behind humanitarian cover.

    I attended a total of seven meetings with policy teams representing Senators Sherrod Brown, Maggie Hassan, Ben Cardin, Mark Kelly, Chris Van Hollen, John Fetterman, and Rick Scott. Throughout these sessions, I witnessed the anti-Syria Lobby attempt to bully and manipulate US officials into accepting their policy of starvation while cynically throwing starving Palestinians in Gaza under the bus.

    At one moment, Raed Saleh, head of the Syrian White Helmets, which was founded by British intelligence, and funded by NATO states, painted Israeli air strikes against Syria in a positive light.

    During a separate meeting, Wa’el Alzayat of the pro-Zionist Muslim outreach Emgage even demanded Senator Chris Van Hollen’s office support the approval of aid for Al Qaeda-linked militias in Syria.

    “Stop freaking out about the stuff going to terrorists,” he insisted, adding that “the Brits are doing it, the Turks are doing it, [and] the Qataris are doing it.”

    Purporting to be a voice for all Syrians, the anti-Syria lobby is spearheaded by the American Coalition for Syria (ACS), an umbrella organization representing opposition groups such as the Syrian American Council (SAC), the Syrian Forum, and a handful of others located in the US and Turkey.

    Emgage, meanwhile, has been credited with getting the diaspora vote out for then-candidate Joe Biden in November 2020. The group has since fallen under criticism for acting as a de facto extension of the Biden White House and Democratic Party within the Muslim community. Emgage board member Farooq Mitha formally went to work for the Biden Pentagon in March 2021. On March 7, Alzayat aimed to weaponize Emgage’s influence against Democratic Senators who seemed uncomfortable with an escalating sanctions policy.

    “I need a good story for my voters,” he explained to Senator Van Hollen’s team.

    Throughout their sanctions campaign on the Hill, Alzayat and his cohorts operated like a miniature version of their Israel lobby allies, supplying roughly 50 volunteers with folders outlining talking points and the biographies of congressional representatives. The bios included a comprehensive list of the Senator or Representative’s recorded stance on Syria, such as their votes on the extension of the AUMF, the US military withdrawal from Syria, and previous sanctions packages targeting the country.



    The handouts also laid out the lobby’s key legislative requests, which largely focused on securing development aid for militia-controlled territory in Syria — including that held by Al Qaeda’s local ally in the country — and ensuring passage of the ‘Assad Regime Anti Normalization Bill,’ which seeks to extend and expand sanctions targeting Damascus.

    The Anti-Syria Lobby’s resemblance to their Israeli counterparts was no mistake. As Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott’s chief of staff reassured us, “the Israelis want you guys in charge.”

    More Starvation Sanctions

    Ever since the US included Syria on its inaugural State Sponsor of Terrorism (SST) list over Damascus’ support for the Palestinian resistance in 1979, Washington has gradually ratcheted up its financial war on the Syrian people. When decades of covert hybrid war erupted into an all-out proxy battle for the country’s territory—and survival—in 2011, the Anti-Syria Lobby officially began to take shape in Washington.


    Syria is the unrivaled champion of the SST having never been delisted since the list’s inception in 1979.
    In 2019, as Syria’s government emerged victorious from a multi-year battle with foreign-backed militias, Washington decided that while Damascus may have won the war, it would not win the peace. That January, New York Rep. Eliot Engel, a recipient of $1.8 million in AIPAC donations, introduced a sanctions package known as the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act. Trump signed the bill as part of the National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2020.


    The US has a 45-year long tradition of sanctioning and isolating Syria economically in response to the country’s support of Palestinian resistance
    The bill was unprecedented in both the way that it sanctioned broad sectors of the Syrian economy rather than only specific individuals, and in its deployment of so-called “secondary sanctions.” Secondary sanctions are imposed on parties that do business with a sanctioned entity even if those exchanges occur outside of the sanctioning entity’s jurisdiction.

    Syria’s economy has been in free fall ever since the Caesar sanctions came into effect. Today, over 12 million Syrians representing more than half of the total population face food insecurity — a 51% increase from 2019. Meanwhile, 90 percent of the population lives under the poverty line. In 2019, the US dollar exchanged for 500 Syrian Pounds. Today, that number is more like 14,100— figures that represent a 2,720 percent devaluation.


    The Syrian currency has devalued by 35,150% since the initial exchange rate of 40 SYP to 1 USD early 2011
    Though H.R. 3202 appears to be focused on addressing UN aid divergence, and sanctioning previously unsanctioned entities like Asma Al Assad’s Syria Trust for Development and the Syrian Red Crescent, the real agenda of the bill is found deep within its 22-page text.

    With the Caesar Sanctions set to expire by the end of 2024, H.R. 3202 seeks to quietly extend the aggressive financial measures until 2032.


    The new bill’s main aim, which received very little attention, is the extension of the Caesar Act for 8 more years.
    Having passed the House with overwhelming enthusiasm, H.R. 3202’s sister bill in the Senate can only pass with Democratic support. It was introduced by Israeli lobby-funded Republican Idaho Sen. James Risch last September and has since been co-sponsored by arch-neoconservative Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

    Because S. 2935 can only pass with Democratic sponsorship, the Anti-Syria Lobby chose Sen. Ben Cardin, the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and sponsor of the anti-Russia Magnitsky Act, as a crucial target for influence.

    After meeting with Sherrod Brown’s office, Cardin’s Research and Legislative Assistant, Christopher Barr, hosted us in the Senator’s office. There, Raed Saleh of the White Helmets complained to Barr that USAID had slashed funding for his organization from $12 million to $3 million in recent years.

    Next, it was time to discuss the true purpose of our visit: the passage of S. 2935.

    Barr appeared uneasy from the outset and even expressed displeasure about the bill, complaining, “What passed the House was kind of a lot… the list of targets is vast.”

    “Syria has already been so heavily sanctioned,” he added.

    In response, Ghanem revealed a critical piece of information about the forces driving the dirty war on Syria, explaining that the impetus to expand and extend Caesar did not come from the Anti-Syria Lobby itself, but someone on Capitol Hill. Ghanem explained that the Hill source actually contacted the American Coalition for Syria to alert them to the fact that Caesar was set to expire, lamenting the fact that its sunset would amount to a loss of “US leverage over the Syrian regime.”

    This line echoed the disturbing language of officials representing both the Biden and Trump administration alike. In 2019, neoconservative operative Dana Stroul declared that thanks to Caesar, Washington “holds a card on preventing reconstruction aid and technical expertise from going back,” to Syria. She lauded the fact that the U.S. could weaponize that “leverage” to keep Syria in “rubble.” Two years later, she would take up post as Deputy Secretary of Defense for the Middle East under Biden.


    Similarly, during an event at the neoconservative think tank, WINEP, the following year, the Special Envoy for Syria under Trump, Joel Rayburn, boasted that Caesar “lowers the bar” for evidence-based sanctions and allows for the broad targeting of any and all reconstruction projects in Syria.


    “We don’t have to prove, for example, that a company that’s going in to do a reconstruction project in the Damascus region is dealing directly with the Assad regime,” Rayburn explained.

    “We don’t have to have the evidence to prove that link,” he continued. “We just have to have the evidence that proves that a company or an individual is investing in […] the construction sector, the engineering sector, most of the aviation sector, the finance sector, energy sector, and so on.”

    These public confessions did not stop the Anti-Syria Lobby from lying to the faces of congressional staffers throughout their March 7 campaign. During a meeting with Sen. Mark Kelly’s office, Ghanem falsely stated that the Caesar Sanctions were “targeted,” “not sectoral,” and “not [an] embargo, nothing punishing to civilians.”

    Yet Alena Douhan, the UN Special Rapporteur on Sanctions who visited Syria to document the effects of Washington’s unilateral sanctions regime on Syria, disagrees. In her 19-page report she clearly states that the sanctions are both illegal and inhumane in the way they affect the average Syrian.

    Stabilization for me but not for thee

    The second legislative ask came in the form of a well rehearsed speech by Ghanem, Zayat, and others, outlining what US tax dollars do and don’t fund in Syria. US aid packages are typically divided into two categories: “humanitarian funding” earmarked for goods such as food, water, and basic medical supplies or “stabilization” funding designed to secure a country as it transitions out of a period of turmoil. Unlike humanitarian assistance, stabilization funding may be used to support major investment and infrastructure projects such as roads, schools, healthcare facilities, and government services.

    The US is the primary funder of humanitarian aid in both North East (NE) and NW Syria. However, while the US spends abundantly on stabilization needs in NE Syria, it spends $0 on the NW. That is because while Washington has long dreamed of establishing a secessionist Kurdish state in Syria’s Northeast, it neglected to send stabilization funds to the Northwest in order to avoid providing direct support to HTS, the Al Qaeda offshoot that governs the territory. The Anti-Syria Lobby was in Washington to change that.

    Leading the push for US funds to Al Qaeda-affiliated elements in Northwest Syria was Wa’el Alzayat, a Syrian expat who proudly served in Iraq’s Green Zone under George Bush’s State Department and more recently published a shocking Washington Post oped begging US officials not to “lift sanctions to help Syria earthquake victims.” In the office of Sen. Chris Van Hollen, Alzayat voiced his frustration with US hesitation in the Northwest.

    “Stop freaking out about the stuff going to terrorists,” he demanded, adding that “the Brits are doing it, the Turks are doing it, the Qataris are doing it.”




    We’re missing out on a golden opportunity here to stabilize the region and leverage it for a political settlement,” he pleaded. In other words, Alzayat was openly lobbying US officials to strengthen Al Qaeda’s position in Syria in order to leverage the terrorist group against the country’s government.

    Alzayat then weaponized his six-figure salary as head of Emgage to bully Van Hollen’s office into bowing before the anti-Syria Lobby, falsely claiming that his AIPAC-linked organization was “behind” the “Uncommitted” vote campaigns that damaged Biden’s primary performance in Michigan and Minnesota.




    Towards the end of the meeting, the regime change lobbyist cynically invoked Israel’s slaughter of 30,000 Palestinians in Gaza to make the case for Al Qaeda in Syria one last time.

    He argued that although “his community” is up in arms about the Biden administration’s funding and arming of the Gaza genocide, they would gladly flock back to the Democratic Party if the US funded roads and schools in Al Qaeda-controlled Idlib.

    “I need a good story for my voters,” Alzayat explained, noting the Muslim community’s disapproval of the Biden Administration’s policy in Gaza and Yemen.

    “You’re upset about all these disappointments,” he continued, play-acting a scenario in which he convinced a Muslim constituent to vote for Biden, again. “Guess what? They’re pumping 50 million into the school sector in the North [of Syria]!”




    Overtures Towards Israel

    The Israel-Palestine crisis loomed large throughout the ACS lobbying trip. Sen. Sherrod Brown’s secretary happened to be a hijabi Muslim woman sporting a pendant outlining the map of Palestine around her neck. As she greeted us, Farouk Belal, the head of the Syrian American Council, grumbled to Ghanem and me: “I hope she’s not with the resistance.”

    When I asked him to clarify what he meant as we exited the office, he explained that people aligned with the Palestinian cause in Washington “don’t like us.”

    Meanwhile, in Sen. Cardin’s office, Raed Salah of the White Helmets painted Israeli strikes on Syria which have crippled Syrian infrastructure, regularly damaged the country’s International civilian airports, and killed hundreds of Syrian Soldiers and civilians alike in a positive light:

    “The situation in Syria is very complicated. Every day we hear of Israeli strikes on the dens, or the bases of the IRGC and its militias. Even we as Syrians did not know the extent to which the Iranians were entrenched in the country…”




    For Saleh, the Israeli strikes do nothing but highlight the presence of the Syrian government-invited Iranian military presence in Syria.

    Later that day, Ghanem attempted to capitalize on Sen. Fetterman’s fanatical pro-Israel antics by describing recent developments in Syria to a 20-something staffer. Referring to the Syrian government’s successful campaign to retake southern territory, he explained that the South is “where they lob missiles on Israel, by the way.” The aide dutifully transcribed this seemingly random piece of information in her notepad. Towards the end of the meeting, Fetterman was discussed as a potential Democratic sponsor of S. 2935 in the Senate.

    In Senator Rick Scott’s office, a Cuban American Government Relations Associate for ACS, Alberto Hernandez, accidentally said the quiet part out loud. When Senator Scott’s ultra-Zionist National Security Advisor, Paul Bonicelli, asked if our group had connected with our “counterparts” in the Israeli lobby so that they could “vet” our proposals — revealing that Scott has apparently outsourced his brain to Zionists — Hernandez remarked: “Formally? No. Informally.”

    He then turned to the rest of the ACS team in the meeting room and said: “You didn’t hear me say that.”

    That admission prompted Bonicelli to suggest that ACS directly coordinate with groups such as the Aramaic Church in Israel, which has supported regime change efforts in Damascus despite overwhelming Christian support of the government within Syria itself.

    As the meeting wound to a close, Bonicelli informed us that he agreed with ACS on the necessity to oppose Iran and Russia.

    “If Obama had done the right thing in 2012, we wouldn’t be here,” he lamented, adding: “the Israelis want you guys in charge.”


    At one point during the meeting in Rick Scott’s Office, Alberto Hernandez, and Sarah Salas, a Cuban American legislative aide, expressed full agreement with US use of unilateral sanctions as means to “push” governments that “we don’t like.”
    Starving Syrians Without A Mandate

    Though several ACS volunteers shared painful personal encounters with the Syrian government throughout the day, many were simply too far removed from Syria to truly represent the voice of Syrian people, especially the 12 million plus civilians currently living in Syrian government-controlled territory.

    One 24-year-old woman who did not speak Arabic and has not been to Syria since 2003 described the Syrian Army’s 2016 liberation of Aleppo from Al Qaeda-linked militants as “the fall of Aleppo.”

    Other Syrians like myself experienced the terror of the West’s proxy war in Syria firsthand. In 2012, my aunt and cousins watched in horror as the Turkish-backed Liwa’ Al Tawhid, an umbrella group of takfiri jihadist militias, arrived on their street in the Seryan El Jdideh neighborhood of Aleppo. The militants proceeded to execute a local pick-up truck driver and steal his vehicle, leaving his bleeding corpse on the street. Shahba, where my family lived up until 2015, was located just a stone’s throw away from these sectarian death squads during our final months there.

    The Syrian dirty war was bloody and gruesome, yet the picture that ACS paints is entirely one-sided. Unfortunately, while organizations like ACS have flocked to the Beltway swamp throughout the last 13 years, there are no Syrians present in Washington DC to counter them. While these groups claim to speak on behalf of the Syrian people, those of us who have lived and still live in areas controlled by Syrian government — regardless of our political affiliations—are rendered voiceless in the very center of power where our perspective should matter most. Even Syria’s embassy has been shuttered since 2014, while Syrian diplomats at the UN in New York are heavily monitored and restricted from traveling beyond the NYC metro area.

    As I witnessed on Capitol Hill, there are few obstacles to the anti-Syria lobby’s ruthless push to prevent the majority of Syrians from emerging from the ruins of war.

    Inside the anti-Syria lobby’s Capitol Hill push for more starvation sanctions Hekmat AboukhaterMarch 20, 2024 A week from the 13th anniversary of the US-backed Syrian dirty war, the American Coalition for Syria held its annual day of advocacy in Washington DC. I went undercover into meetings with Senate policy advisors and witnessed the lobby’s cynical campaign to starve Syria into submission. On the morning of March 7, as the US Capitol teemed with lobbyists securing earmarks ahead of appropriations week and activists decrying the Gaza genocide, one special interest group on the Hill stood out. In the corridors of the Rayburn building, a group of roughly 50 people prepared for a busy day of advocating for sanctions to be levied against their homeland. They were the Anti-Syria lobby — and had I infiltrated their influence campaign. Throughout the day, I watched as this group pushed US officials to accept their policy of starvation sanctions while cynically ignoring famished Palestinians in Gaza. Among the lobbyists was Raed Saleh, the head of the Syrian White Helmets, who were to propagandize for regime change from behind humanitarian cover. I attended a total of seven meetings with policy teams representing Senators Sherrod Brown, Maggie Hassan, Ben Cardin, Mark Kelly, Chris Van Hollen, John Fetterman, and Rick Scott. Throughout these sessions, I witnessed the anti-Syria Lobby attempt to bully and manipulate US officials into accepting their policy of starvation while cynically throwing starving Palestinians in Gaza under the bus. At one moment, Raed Saleh, head of the Syrian White Helmets, which was founded by British intelligence, and funded by NATO states, painted Israeli air strikes against Syria in a positive light. During a separate meeting, Wa’el Alzayat of the pro-Zionist Muslim outreach Emgage even demanded Senator Chris Van Hollen’s office support the approval of aid for Al Qaeda-linked militias in Syria. “Stop freaking out about the stuff going to terrorists,” he insisted, adding that “the Brits are doing it, the Turks are doing it, [and] the Qataris are doing it.” Purporting to be a voice for all Syrians, the anti-Syria lobby is spearheaded by the American Coalition for Syria (ACS), an umbrella organization representing opposition groups such as the Syrian American Council (SAC), the Syrian Forum, and a handful of others located in the US and Turkey. Emgage, meanwhile, has been credited with getting the diaspora vote out for then-candidate Joe Biden in November 2020. The group has since fallen under criticism for acting as a de facto extension of the Biden White House and Democratic Party within the Muslim community. Emgage board member Farooq Mitha formally went to work for the Biden Pentagon in March 2021. On March 7, Alzayat aimed to weaponize Emgage’s influence against Democratic Senators who seemed uncomfortable with an escalating sanctions policy. “I need a good story for my voters,” he explained to Senator Van Hollen’s team. Throughout their sanctions campaign on the Hill, Alzayat and his cohorts operated like a miniature version of their Israel lobby allies, supplying roughly 50 volunteers with folders outlining talking points and the biographies of congressional representatives. The bios included a comprehensive list of the Senator or Representative’s recorded stance on Syria, such as their votes on the extension of the AUMF, the US military withdrawal from Syria, and previous sanctions packages targeting the country. The handouts also laid out the lobby’s key legislative requests, which largely focused on securing development aid for militia-controlled territory in Syria — including that held by Al Qaeda’s local ally in the country — and ensuring passage of the ‘Assad Regime Anti Normalization Bill,’ which seeks to extend and expand sanctions targeting Damascus. The Anti-Syria Lobby’s resemblance to their Israeli counterparts was no mistake. As Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott’s chief of staff reassured us, “the Israelis want you guys in charge.” Syrian Civil War map|Syrian Civil War map (November 24, 2023) via Wikimedia Commons. Edited by author More Starvation Sanctions Ever since the US included Syria on its inaugural State Sponsor of Terrorism (SST) list over Damascus’ support for the Palestinian resistance in 1979, Washington has gradually ratcheted up its financial war on the Syrian people. When decades of covert hybrid war erupted into an all-out proxy battle for the country’s territory—and survival—in 2011, the Anti-Syria Lobby officially began to take shape in Washington. Syria is the unrivaled champion of the SST having never been delisted since the list’s inception in 1979. In 2019, as Syria’s government emerged victorious from a multi-year battle with foreign-backed militias, Washington decided that while Damascus may have won the war, it would not win the peace. That January, New York Rep. Eliot Engel, a recipient of $1.8 million in AIPAC donations, introduced a sanctions package known as the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act. Trump signed the bill as part of the National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2020. The US has a 45-year long tradition of sanctioning and isolating Syria economically in response to the country’s support of Palestinian resistance The bill was unprecedented in both the way that it sanctioned broad sectors of the Syrian economy rather than only specific individuals, and in its deployment of so-called “secondary sanctions.” Secondary sanctions are imposed on parties that do business with a sanctioned entity even if those exchanges occur outside of the sanctioning entity’s jurisdiction. Syria’s economy has been in free fall ever since the Caesar sanctions came into effect. Today, over 12 million Syrians representing more than half of the total population face food insecurity — a 51% increase from 2019. Meanwhile, 90 percent of the population lives under the poverty line. In 2019, the US dollar exchanged for 500 Syrian Pounds. Today, that number is more like 14,100— figures that represent a 2,720 percent devaluation. The Syrian currency has devalued by 35,150% since the initial exchange rate of 40 SYP to 1 USD early 2011 Though H.R. 3202 appears to be focused on addressing UN aid divergence, and sanctioning previously unsanctioned entities like Asma Al Assad’s Syria Trust for Development and the Syrian Red Crescent, the real agenda of the bill is found deep within its 22-page text. With the Caesar Sanctions set to expire by the end of 2024, H.R. 3202 seeks to quietly extend the aggressive financial measures until 2032. The new bill’s main aim, which received very little attention, is the extension of the Caesar Act for 8 more years. Having passed the House with overwhelming enthusiasm, H.R. 3202’s sister bill in the Senate can only pass with Democratic support. It was introduced by Israeli lobby-funded Republican Idaho Sen. James Risch last September and has since been co-sponsored by arch-neoconservative Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Because S. 2935 can only pass with Democratic sponsorship, the Anti-Syria Lobby chose Sen. Ben Cardin, the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and sponsor of the anti-Russia Magnitsky Act, as a crucial target for influence. After meeting with Sherrod Brown’s office, Cardin’s Research and Legislative Assistant, Christopher Barr, hosted us in the Senator’s office. There, Raed Saleh of the White Helmets complained to Barr that USAID had slashed funding for his organization from $12 million to $3 million in recent years. Next, it was time to discuss the true purpose of our visit: the passage of S. 2935. Barr appeared uneasy from the outset and even expressed displeasure about the bill, complaining, “What passed the House was kind of a lot… the list of targets is vast.” “Syria has already been so heavily sanctioned,” he added. In response, Ghanem revealed a critical piece of information about the forces driving the dirty war on Syria, explaining that the impetus to expand and extend Caesar did not come from the Anti-Syria Lobby itself, but someone on Capitol Hill. Ghanem explained that the Hill source actually contacted the American Coalition for Syria to alert them to the fact that Caesar was set to expire, lamenting the fact that its sunset would amount to a loss of “US leverage over the Syrian regime.” This line echoed the disturbing language of officials representing both the Biden and Trump administration alike. In 2019, neoconservative operative Dana Stroul declared that thanks to Caesar, Washington “holds a card on preventing reconstruction aid and technical expertise from going back,” to Syria. She lauded the fact that the U.S. could weaponize that “leverage” to keep Syria in “rubble.” Two years later, she would take up post as Deputy Secretary of Defense for the Middle East under Biden. Similarly, during an event at the neoconservative think tank, WINEP, the following year, the Special Envoy for Syria under Trump, Joel Rayburn, boasted that Caesar “lowers the bar” for evidence-based sanctions and allows for the broad targeting of any and all reconstruction projects in Syria. “We don’t have to prove, for example, that a company that’s going in to do a reconstruction project in the Damascus region is dealing directly with the Assad regime,” Rayburn explained. “We don’t have to have the evidence to prove that link,” he continued. “We just have to have the evidence that proves that a company or an individual is investing in […] the construction sector, the engineering sector, most of the aviation sector, the finance sector, energy sector, and so on.” These public confessions did not stop the Anti-Syria Lobby from lying to the faces of congressional staffers throughout their March 7 campaign. During a meeting with Sen. Mark Kelly’s office, Ghanem falsely stated that the Caesar Sanctions were “targeted,” “not sectoral,” and “not [an] embargo, nothing punishing to civilians.” Yet Alena Douhan, the UN Special Rapporteur on Sanctions who visited Syria to document the effects of Washington’s unilateral sanctions regime on Syria, disagrees. In her 19-page report she clearly states that the sanctions are both illegal and inhumane in the way they affect the average Syrian. Stabilization for me but not for thee The second legislative ask came in the form of a well rehearsed speech by Ghanem, Zayat, and others, outlining what US tax dollars do and don’t fund in Syria.

    شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ

    "(Masa yang diwajibkan kamu berpuasa itu ialah) bulan Ramadan yang padanya diturunkan al-Quran, menjadi petunjuk bagi sekalian manusia, dan menjadi keterangan-keterangan yang menjelaskan petunjuk dan (menjelaskan) perbezaan antara yang benar dengan yang salah"
    [Surah al-Baqarah 185]

    #Bulan Ramadhan bulan digalakkan kita memperbanyakkan membaca dan mentadabbur al-Quran. Hal ini kerana al-Quran diturunkan pada bulan Ramadhan.

    #Berdasarkan ayat ini, Imam Ibn Kathir mentafsirkan bahawa Allah swt memuliakan bulan puasa (Ramadhan) berbanding bulan yang lain yang mana bulan tersebut terpilih sebagai bulan turunnya al-Quran berbanding bulan-bulan yang lain.

    #Telah dijelaskan lagi oleh Imam  Ibn Kathir dengan menukilkan riwayat Abu Jaafar al-Baqi:

    كَانَ ابْتِدَاءُ الْوَحْيِ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وسلَّم يوم الِاثْنَيْنِ، لِسَبْعَ عَشْرَةَ لَيْلَةً خَلَتْ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ

    "Permulaan wahyu bagi Rasulullah SAW pada hari Isnin bersamaan malam 17 dari bulan Ramadan" (Lihat: al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah)

    #Sesiapa yang menghafal al-Quran, membaca al-Quran, mentadabbur al-Quran, menjadikan al-Quran sebagai panduan dan pedoman dalam kehidupan nescaya mereka beroleh kedudukan yang mulia disisi Allah dan sentiasa dalam rahmat Allah swt.

    #Daripada Sayidatina Aisyah r.ha, Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    مَثَلُ الَّذِي يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ وَهُوَ حَافِظٌ لَهُ مَعَ السَّفَرَةِ الْكِرَامِ الْبَرَرَةِ وَمَثَلُ الَّذِي يَقْرَأُ وَهُوَ يَتَعَاهَدُهُ وَهُوَ عَلَيْهِ شَدِيدٌ فَلَهُ أَجْرَانِ

    “Perumpamaan orang membaca al-Quran sedangkan dia menghafalnya, maka ia akan bersama para Malaikat mulia. Sedangkan perumpamaan seorang yang membaca al-Quran dengan tekun, dan dia mengalami kesulitan atasnya, maka dia akan mendapat dua ganjaran pahala" (HR al-Bukhari)

    #Daripada Sayidina Abu Mas’ud al-Badri, Sayidina ‘Uqbah Ibn Amru r.a, bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    يَؤُمُّ الْقَوْمَ أَقْرَؤُهُمْ لِكِتَابِ اللَّهِ

    "Yang layak menjadi imam di kalangan mereka adalah yang paling banyak hafazan dan bacaan kitab Allah" (HR Muslim, Abu Daud dan Ibn Majah)

    #Daripada Sayidina Umar Ibn al-Khattab r.a, bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَرْفَعُ بِهَذَا الْكِتَابِ أَقْوَامًا وَيَضَعُ بِهِ آخَرِينَ

    "Sesungguhnya Allah mengangkat martabat beberapa golongan dan merendahkan martabat yang lain dengan sebab Al-Quran" (HR Muslim, Ibn Majah dan al-Daraqutni)

    ♡Jom jadikan al-Quran sebagai bacaan harian kita, juga sebagai pedoman hidup kita. Apabila kita sentiasa menjadikannya sebagai panduan dan peraturan hidup, kita tidak akan sesat dan sentiasa mendapat bimbingan daripada Allah swt. Al-Quran juga merupakan senjata yang paling berkesan untuk membersihkan jiwa dan menyinarkannya♡

Sedangkan perumpamaan seorang yang membaca al-Quran dengan tekun, dan dia mengalami kesulitan atasnya, maka dia akan mendapat dua ganjaran pahala" (HR al-Bukhari) #Daripada Sayidina Abu Mas’ud al-Badri, Sayidina ‘Uqbah Ibn Amru r.a, bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda: يَؤُمُّ الْقَوْمَ أَقْرَؤُهُمْ لِكِتَابِ اللَّهِ "Yang layak menjadi imam di kalangan mereka adalah yang paling banyak hafazan dan bacaan kitab Allah" (HR Muslim, Abu Daud dan Ibn Majah) #Daripada Sayidina Umar Ibn al-Khattab r.a, bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda: إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَرْفَعُ بِهَذَا الْكِتَابِ أَقْوَامًا وَيَضَعُ بِهِ آخَرِينَ "Sesungguhnya Allah mengangkat martabat beberapa golongan dan merendahkan martabat yang lain dengan sebab Al-Quran" (HR Muslim, Ibn Majah dan al-Daraqutni) ♡Jom jadikan al-Quran sebagai bacaan harian kita, juga sebagai pedoman hidup kita. Apabila kita sentiasa menjadikannya sebagai panduan dan peraturan hidup, kita tidak akan sesat dan sentiasa mendapat bimbingan daripada Allah swt. Al-Quran juga merupakan senjata yang paling berkesan untuk membersihkan jiwa dan menyinarkannya♡ 🐊Ust naim Klik link ini untuk     http://bit.ly/tadabburkalamullah Facebook:    https://m.facebook.com/tadabburkalamullah

  • PERKONGSIAN 1 HARI 1 HADIS

    Sahur Waktu Mustajab Berdoa

    عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَنْزِلُ رَبُّنَا تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى كُلَّ لَيْلَةٍ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ الدُّنْيَا حِينَ يَبْقَى ثُلُثُ اللَّيْلِ الْآخِرُ يَقُولُ مَنْ يَدْعُونِي فَأَسْتَجِيبَ لَهُ مَنْ يَسْأَلُنِي فَأُعْطِيَهُ مَنْ يَسْتَغْفِرُنِي فَأَغْفِرَ لَهُ

    Daripada Abu Hurairah RA, Sesungguhnya Rasulullah SAW bersabda: “Allah Tabaraka wa Ta’ala turun ke langit dunia pada setiap akhir sepertiga malam lalu berfirman, “Siapa sahaja yang berdoa kepada-Ku, maka Aku tunaikan untuknya. Sesiapa sahaja yang meminta kepada-Ku, Aku berikan kepadanya. Sesiapa sahaja yang memohon ampun kepada-Ku, Aku ampunkannya.” (HR Bukhari No: 1094) Dar Ibn Kathir. Status: Hadis Sahih

    Pengajaran:

    1.  Sepertiga akhir malam adalah waktu istimewa untuk ahli ibadah (sekitar jam 3 pagi hingga sebelum subuh).

    2.  Waktu akhir sepertiga malam (waktu sahur) merupakan waktu mustajab doa (doa diperkenan).

    3.  Waktu akhir sepertiga malam (waktu sahur) waktu Allah mengampunkan dosa kepada yang memohon keampunan.

    وَبِالْأَسْحَارِ هُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُون

    Ketika waktu sahur (akhir-akhir malam), mereka berdoa memohon keampunan”  (Surah Az Zariyat ayat: 18)

    4.  Rugilah mereka yang bangun di penghujung malam hanya untuk makan sahur atau ke bilik air semata-mata.

    Rebutlah peluang waktu istimewa ini dengan solat sunat seperti tahajud  dan  berdoa serta memohon  keampunan daripada dosa.

    Jadikan ibadat Ramadan kali ini menyuburkan amalan kita bagi membangunkan jiwa taqwa.

  • ☆Tadabbur Kalamullah 8 Ramadhan 1445H☆

    یَـٰۤأَیُّهَا ٱلَّذِینَ ءَامَنُوا۟ كُتِبَ عَلَیۡكُمُ ٱلصِّیَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى ٱلَّذِینَ مِن قَبۡلِكُمۡ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَتَّقُونَ

    "Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Kamu diwajibkan berpuasa sebagaimana diwajibkan atas orang-orang yang dahulu daripada kamu, supaya kamu bertaqwa"  [Surah al-Baqarah 183]

    #Dalam keadaan kita diwajibkan berpuasa, pada masa yang sama juga, kita dituntut untuk memperbanyakkan sedekah dan sentiasa menyantuni orang susah yang memerlukan seperti menjamu mereka berbuka puasa.

    #Diriwayatkan daripada Sayidina Salman al-Farisi r.a bahawa Rasulullah saw bersabda:

    مَنْ فَطَّرَ صَائِمًا كَانَ لَهُ عِتْقُ رَقَبَةٍ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ لِذُنُوبِهِ قِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ لَيْسَ كُلُّنَا يَجِدُ مَا يُفَطِّرُ الصَّائِمَ قَالَ يُعْطِي اللَّهُ هَذَا الثَّوَابَ مَنْ فَطَّرَ صَائِمًا عَلَى مَذْقَةِ لَبَنٍ أَوْ تَمْرَةٍ أَوْ شَرْبَةِ مَاءٍ

    "Sesiapa yang memberi makan kepada orang yang berbuka dia mendapat ganjaran dibebaskan dari api neraka dan keampunan ke atas dosa-dosanya. Lalu ditanyakan kepada Rasulullah saw: "Wahai Rasulullah, bukanlah kesemua kami ini mampu untuk memberikan sesuatu untuk orang berpuasa berbuka". Maka Rasulullah saw menjawab: "Allah memberikan pahala ini kepada sesiapa yang memberi makan kepada orang yang berbuka puasa dengan susu yang dicampur dengan air, sebiji kurma, atau air minuman" (Riwayat Ibn Khuzaimah)

    #Diriwayatkan bahawa Ibnu Shihab al-Zuhri,

    كان ابن شهاب الزهري إذا دخل رمضان قال: فإنما هو تلاوة القرآن، وإطعام الطعام.

    "Apabila tiba sahaja Ramadhan dia akan berkata: Ianya adalah bulan membaca al-Quran dan memberi orang makan" (Lihat: Lataif al-Maarif oleh Imam Ibn Rejab)

    #Daripada Abdul Rahman bin Yazid bin Jabir berkata: "Maula perempuan Sayidina Abu Umamah r.a menceritakan kepadaku: Abu Umamah adalah orang yang suka bersedekah dan suka mengumpulkan sesuatu dan kemudian disedekahkannya. Dia tidak pernah menolak seorang pun yang meminta sesuatu kepadanya, walaupun dia hanya mampu untuk memberi hanya seulas bawang merah atau sebiji buah kurma atau sesuap makanan. Pada suatu hari datang seorang meminta kepadanya padahal ketika itu dia hanya mempunyai wang sebanyak 3 dinar. Orang itu tetap meminta juga, maka Abu Umamah pun memberikannya 1 dinar. Kemudian datang orang lain dan meminta bantuan daripadanya. Abu Umamah memberinya 1 dinar. Datang lagi seorang pengemis, Abu Umamah memberinya 1 dinar juga. (Lihat: Siyar A’lam Nubala)

    #Bagi orang yang dijamu makan, maka berdoalah untuk orang yang menjamu berbuka puasa itu. Ini sebagai tanda ingatan dan terima kasih kita kepada orang yang menjamu kita berbuka puasa, kita juga disunatkan untuk mendoakan mereka yang menjamu kita berbuka puasa dengan doa yang Nabi saw pernah ajar.

    #Menurut Anas bin Malik r.a, Nabi pernah datang ke rumah Sayidina Sa’ad bin ‘Ubadah r.a. Dia menghidangkan roti dan minyak. Baginda saw lalu makan dan membaca:

    أَفْطَرَ عِنْدَكُمُ الصَّائِمُونَ، وَأَكَلَ طَعَامَكُمُ الأَبْرَارُ، وَصَلَّتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ
     
    "Telah berbuka puasa di sisi kamu mereka yang berpuasa, telah makan makanan kamu mereka yang baik dan telah berselawat ke atas kamu para malaikat" (HR Abu Daud, Ahmad dan an-Nasa’ie)

    ♡Contohilah mereka yang pemurah, suka berderma dan menjamu orang makan. Moga kita menjadi seorang yang dermawan. Aamiiin♡

  • Why Are Arab Regimes So Impotent in the Face of Zionist Barbarism?
    Kevin Barrett, Senior EditorMarch 9, 2024
    VT Condemns the ETHNIC CLEANSING OF PALESTINIANS by USA/Israel

    $ 280 BILLION US TAXPAYER DOLLARS INVESTED since 1948 in US/Israeli Ethnic Cleansing and Occupation Operation; $ 150B direct "aid" and $ 130B in "Offense" contracts

    By Kevin Barrett, for Crescent international

    As I write this in late February 2024 CE (mid-Sha‘ban 1445 Hijri) the official number of Palestinians murdered by zionist aggression in the al-Aqsa Storm war has risen to nearly 30,000. The real number is considerably higher, since many victims are still buried beneath layers of rubble. Nearly 70,000 have been injured. Most of those killed and maimed have been women and children.

    The martyrs dispatched quickly to paradise are luckier than the survivors, who are forced to endure almost unimaginable horrors. The zionists have blockaded food in a deliberate attempt to slowly starve Gazans to death. Social media videos abound showing crying mothers unable to find so much as a crumb for their famished children. Surviving families, many of whom have lost loved ones, lack housing, heat, and warm clothing in the midst of the cold, rainy winter.

    The demonic zionists have deliberately bombed water, sewage, electrical, fuel, and health care infrastructure. They have destroyed the majority of Gaza’s housing, in an effort to mass-murder Gazans and expel the survivors. The destruction of Palestinian homes and life support has forced 1.4 million people to take shelter in Rafah on the Egyptian border. Now the zionists are intensifying their bombing of Rafah in the latest episode of their “final solution to the Palestinian problem.”

    On January 26, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) agreed with South Africa’s contention that there is probable cause to believe that Israel is committing genocide (see also here). Any nation on earth could invoke the made-in-USA “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) doctrine and use military force in an effort to stop the #GazaHolocaust. The very first nations that might be expected to act are those that share Palestine’s Arabic language and culture. And yet only two relatively small and weak Arab nations have tried: Lebanon and Yemen. The larger, richer, and more powerful states, beginning with Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have been missing in action.

    What explains this bizarre situation, in which the weak show courage while the strong reek of abject cowardice? Let’s begin with the cowardice. Egypt has basically been a zionist colony ever since the traitor Anwar Sadat “abnormalized” with Israel in 1979. Since then, the Egyptian military has been awash in American funding, with nearly $100 billion in bribes convincing junta leaders to continue betraying their Palestinian brothers and sisters.

    Today, Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi finds himself in a tight spot, as Israel pushes him to endorse genocide and open the border to Palestinian refugees, which would enable the complete erasure of the people of Gaza. To his credit, el-Sisi has thus far refused, saying that any expulsion of Palestinians to Egypt would cause Cairo to break off relations and return to an anti-Israel war footing. But ominously, Egypt is building a gigantic human cattle pen on the Gaza border, “just in case” or so el-Sisi says.

    Saudi Arabia, historically a source of both lip service and a degree of real support for Palestine, has gradually followed Egypt’s path of abject surrender. The current de facto ruler, Mohammad Bin Salman, implicitly endorsed zionist claims to al-Quds (Jerusalem) by acquiescing to Donald Trump’s “Abraham Accords” fiasco, setting the stage for the current catastrophe. Today, the Saudis are trying to make amends for that mistake by insisting on “no normalization without a Palestinian state with pre-1967 borders” and strengthening the Kingdom’s peace deal with Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, even in the face of US pressure to join Washington’s anti-Yemen “Operation Prosperity Guardian,” better known as “Operation Genocide Guardian.”

    It is ironic that Saudi Arabia is tacitly (though not actively) supporting Ansarullah’s blockade of Israeli-bound shipping. After all, it was the Saudis themselves who originally dragged the US into their war on Ansarullah in 2015. Now the tables are turned, and the Americans are trying to drag the Saudis into an anti-Yemen war, so far without success.

    Saudi Arabia has a nearly two-trillion-dollar adjusted GDP, while Yemen’s is a mere $0.2 trillion. By that measure, Yemen’s economy is one-hundredth the size of the Saudi economy. But despite its apparent weakness, Yemen was not only able to defeat the Saudis and their western backers in a nine-year war, but is now taking military action to try to stop the genocide of Gaza.

    Lebanon, too, boasts a mere $0.2 trillion GDP, one percent of Saudi Arabia’s and one-twentieth the size of Egypt’s. But like Yemen, Lebanon has distinguished itself by taking military action in support of Palestine. Throughout Israel’s genocide of Gaza, the Lebanese resistance group Hizbullah, the de facto main branch of the Lebanese military, has been pounding the zionists nonstop, puncturing Israel’s “Iron dome,” forcing 200,000 zionist settlers to flee the northern strip of Occupied Palestine, and diverting Israel’s forces from the Gaza genocide campaign.

    So why are mice like Yemen and Lebanon roaring, while lions like Saudi Arabia and Egypt whimper? There are two categorically different kinds of answers: political (dunyawi) and theological-spiritual (rouhani).

    Politically, most leaders feel constrained by circumstance; their choices are dictated by the limits of the possible. Caught between a proverbial rock (zionist power) and a hard place (their own people’s support for Palestine) they try to walk a fine line, careful not to anger the zionists too much lest they become targets, while offering sufficient lip service to the Palestinian cause to at least minimally placate their subjects.

    That balancing act has become more difficult since October 7. Any Arab leader who takes active steps to support Palestine will be painting a target on his back—and the stronger the steps, the bigger the target. Yet any Arab leader who is seen as complicit in the genocide risks being overthrown by his own people.

    The leaders of Hizbullah and Ansarullah already have zio-American targets painted on their backs. They have less to lose, are principled rather than merely pragmatic, and therefore are free to seek Allah’s good pleasure doing the right thing: actively resisting the zionist genocide of Gaza. Whereas leaders like Bin Salman and el-Sisi, presiding over states whose economies and militaries are intertwined with American and hence zionist money and power, would have to take huge risks in order to return their countries to forthrightly anti-zionist positions. And even if they did, and survived, there is no guarantee that, given the current balance of power, they would have much of a chance of succeeding in saving Gazans, much less fully defeating the zionist genocidaires.

    So, from a worldly political viewpoint, the situation is bleak. Arab leaders are simply acting within constraints imposed by the power of circumstance.

    But how did they, and their regimes, arrive in such circumstances? By way of a long process of cultural decline. Whole peoples, led by their elites, have repeatedly chosen expediency over ethics, laziness over diligence, egotism over islam (submission of the self to God).

    According to well-known ahadith, one of the signs of Yawm al-Qiyyama is that “the lowest and the worst man in the nation will become its leader.” The world may not quite have reached that point yet, but it isn’t far off. Today, leaders who represent the best of their nation, like those of Hizbullah and Ansarullah, are the exceptions. Most leaders are neither pious nor courageous nor brilliant. When an uncommonly good leader arises, like Imran Khan in Pakistan, he risks being assassinated or imprisoned.

    So, the deeper reason the Arab nation is so helpless today is that it, like much of the rest of the world, has declined in spiritual quality, allowing itself to be divided and conquered by the forces of evil. The mediocre-at-best leaders that predominate in today’s Arab lands, like the shattered and corrupted societies they preside over, are simply not a match for demonic energy of the zionist shayateen.

    But the seeds of better leadership, planted in places like Yemen and Lebanon and Iran and (insha’Allah) Pakistan, are beginning to sprout. As the secular-materialist west declines, and Zio-American power with it, the circumstances constraining Arab leadership will change, and the possibility of good leadership reviving united Arab and Islamic lands (rather like Putin’s leadership reviving Russia) will become manifest.

    Whatever worldly conquests the zionist dajjal acquires will be only temporary, and will bring the Occupation demons no real happiness nor any respite from their self-inflicted torment of hatred, greed, and cruelty. In the end, it will be seen that they were only digging their own graves—all the way to hell. For as the Qur’an tells us, “They plot and Allah plans; and Allah is the best of planners.” (Surat al-Anfal, 30).

The destruction of Palestinian homes and life support has forced 1.4 million people to take shelter in Rafah on the Egyptian border. Now the zionists are intensifying their bombing of Rafah in the latest episode of their “final solution to the Palestinian problem.” On January 26, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) agreed with South Africa’s contention that there is probable cause to believe that Israel is committing genocide (see also here). Any nation on earth could invoke the made-in-USA “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) doctrine and use military force in an effort to stop the #GazaHolocaust. The very first nations that might be expected to act are those that share Palestine’s Arabic language and culture. And yet only two relatively small and weak Arab nations have tried: Lebanon and Yemen. The larger, richer, and more powerful states, beginning with Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have been missing in action. What explains this bizarre situation, in which the weak show courage while the strong reek of abject cowardice? Let’s begin with the cowardice. Egypt has basically been a zionist colony ever since the traitor Anwar Sadat “abnormalized” with Israel in 1979. Since then, the Egyptian military has been awash in American funding, with nearly $100 billion in bribes convincing junta leaders to continue betraying their Palestinian brothers and sisters. Today, Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi finds himself in a tight spot, as Israel pushes him to endorse genocide and open the border to Palestinian refugees, which would enable the complete erasure of the people of Gaza. To his credit, el-Sisi has thus far refused, saying that any expulsion of Palestinians to Egypt would cause Cairo to break off relations and return to an anti-Israel war footing. But ominously, Egypt is building a gigantic human cattle pen on the Gaza border, “just in case” or so el-Sisi says. Saudi Arabia, historically a source of both lip service and a degree of real support for Palestine, has gradually followed Egypt’s path of abject surrender. The current de facto ruler, Mohammad Bin Salman, implicitly endorsed zionist claims to al-Quds (Jerusalem) by acquiescing to Donald Trump’s “Abraham Accords” fiasco, setting the stage for the current catastrophe. Today, the Saudis are trying to make amends for that mistake by insisting on “no normalization without a Palestinian state with pre-1967 borders” and strengthening the Kingdom’s peace deal with Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, even in the face of US pressure to join Washington’s anti-Yemen “Operation Prosperity Guardian,” better known as “Operation Genocide Guardian.” It is ironic that Saudi Arabia is tacitly (though not actively) supporting Ansarullah’s blockade of Israeli-bound shipping. After all, it was the Saudis themselves who originally dragged the US into their war on Ansarullah in 2015. Now the tables are turned, and the Americans are trying to drag the Saudis into an anti-Yemen war, so far without success. Saudi Arabia has a nearly two-trillion-dollar adjusted GDP, while Yemen’s is a mere $0.2 trillion. By that measure, Yemen’s economy is one-hundredth the size of the Saudi economy. But despite its apparent weakness, Yemen was not only able to defeat the Saudis and their western backers in a nine-year war, but is now taking military action to try to stop the genocide of Gaza. Lebanon, too, boasts a mere $0.2 trillion GDP, one percent of Saudi Arabia’s and one-twentieth the size of Egypt’s. But like Yemen, Lebanon has distinguished itself by taking military action in support of Palestine. Throughout Israel’s genocide of Gaza, the Lebanese resistance group Hizbullah, the de facto main branch of the Lebanese military, has been pounding the zionists nonstop, puncturing Israel’s “Iron dome,” forcing 200,000 zionist settlers to flee the northern strip of Occupied Palestine, and diverting Israel’s forces from the Gaza genocide campaign. So why are mice like Yemen and Lebanon roaring, while lions like Saudi Arabia and Egypt whimper? There are two categorically different kinds of answers: political (dunyawi) and theological-spiritual (rouhani). Politically, most leaders feel constrained by circumstance; their choices are dictated by the limits of the possible. Caught between a proverbial rock (zionist power) and a hard place (their own people’s support for Palestine) they try to walk a fine line, careful not to anger the zionists too much lest they become targets, while offering sufficient lip service to the Palestinian cause to at least minimally placate their subjects. That balancing act has become more difficult since October 7. Any Arab leader who takes active steps to support Palestine will be painting a target on his back—and the stronger the steps, the bigger the target. Yet any Arab leader who is seen as complicit in the genocide risks being overthrown by his own people. The leaders of Hizbullah and Ansarullah already have zio-American targets painted on their backs. They have less to lose, are principled rather than merely pragmatic, and therefore are free to seek Allah’s good pleasure doing the right thing: actively resisting the zionist genocide of Gaza. Whereas leaders like Bin Salman and el-Sisi, presiding over states whose economies and militaries are intertwined with American and hence zionist money and power, would have to take huge risks in order to return their countries to forthrightly anti-zionist positions. And even if they did, and survived, there is no guarantee that, given the current balance of power, they would have much of a chance of succeeding in saving Gazans, much less fully defeating the zionist genocidaires. So, from a worldly political viewpoint, the situation is bleak. Arab leaders are simply acting within constraints imposed by the power of circumstance. But how did they, and their regimes, arrive in such circumstances? By way of a long process of cultural decline. Whole peoples, led by their elites, have repeatedly chosen expediency over ethics, laziness over diligence, egotism over islam (submission of the self to God). According to well-known ahadith, one of the signs of Yawm al-Qiyyama is that “the lowest and the worst man in the nation will become its leader.” The world may not quite have reached that point yet, but it isn’t far off. Today, leaders who represent the best of their nation, like those of Hizbullah and Ansarullah, are the exceptions. Most leaders are neither pious nor courageous nor brilliant. When an uncommonly good leader arises, like Imran Khan in Pakistan, he risks being assassinated or imprisoned. So, the deeper reason the Arab nation is so helpless today is that it, like much of the rest of the world, has declined in spiritual quality, allowing itself to be divided and conquered by the forces of evil. The mediocre-at-best leaders that predominate in today’s Arab lands, like the shattered and corrupted societies they preside over, are simply not a match for demonic energy of the zionist shayateen. But the seeds of better leadership, planted in places like Yemen and Lebanon and Iran and (insha’Allah) Pakistan, are beginning to sprout. As the secular-materialist west declines, and Zio-American power with it, the circumstances constraining Arab leadership will change, and the possibility of good leadership reviving united Arab and Islamic lands (rather like Putin’s leadership reviving Russia) will become manifest. Whatever worldly conquests the zionist dajjal acquires will be only temporary, and will bring the Occupation demons no real happiness nor any respite from their self-inflicted torment of hatred, greed, and cruelty. In the end, it will be seen that they were only digging their own graves—all the way to hell. For as the Qur’an tells us, “They plot and Allah plans; and Allah is the best of planners.” (Surat al-Anfal, 30).
